he just needs the correct medicine to fix his problems well some of them .

Tell him that is because after 198 yards of flight, the bullet begins to accelerate... And that is the reason why .338 LM is so expensive.

Kind of like the shit I heard one gun store salesman tell a prospective handgun purchaser one time: "This is a .45 ACP. You know what the ACP mean? It means that it will blast the enemy clean off his feet and slam him into the ground like a cannon shell..."

That .338 bullet is only unstable at the short distances while doing it’s double summersault roundoff backhand spring before it’s starting to reverse it’s spin to get ready for the jump to light speed.

Thats the effect of the Hornady AMAX tip melting.

Once the plastic turns into plasma the bullet becomes a stabilized, lava carrying, incendiary sniper round.

Only downside is that if used on living targets the plasma cauterizes the wound channel as it passes through and nothing dies from .338 LM hits.

You mean 338 does not mean it shoots three .38’s every time you pull the trigger. It just takes them awhile to all line up behind each other (Drafting). So this is why the velocity increase happens down range.

Hey, the salesman was telling the truth about that one. Assuming the enemies in question were cockroaches or spiders. Or chihuahuas.

The reason they don’t stabilize until that range is that the fly-by-wire hasn’t detached yet and is still being fed guidance by the IOR TOW module. I think Millet and CounterSniper make a system also.

Once the wire has detached, speed is greatly increased (like a rubber band being stretched) after that jacket is shed like a snail with salt poured on it.

But yeah, first 200 yards is totally dedicated to programming and transmission really.

As a 338LM owner/shooter, Ill offer this tech tip to help stabilize out of the muzzle!!!!

Drill a 5/32 hole in the receiver and ignite the round with canon fuse. This activates the propulsion system being used (ammo manufacturers vary here between simple sugar engines, to the ultra rare binary gas systems). Once the fuse burns flush with the receiver (safety glasses are a must as the embers sting like the devil in your eye), pull the trigger. The primer and secondary propulsion system will be working together. No more key holes under 200 yards.

Doesnt the .338 LM rely on steam catapult launch to get the projectile started than the burners take over?

Same effect you see on carrier take offs, plane is all fucked up at launch and than "goes to sleep" under its own power.

This is more common than you think....
You'd be shocked at how many retards...er...FUDDs, think that parabolic curve in the trajectory indicates a bullet "rises" from the muzzle.
Oh the stories I could tell. Worse thing ever, was ammo makers putting ballistic trajectories on the back of a cartridge box.

Grabbety may not be real-don't you know?


"Firstly, and most importantly -- "none of us believe that we're a flying pancake in space." The community merely believes that space does not exist, the world sits still and the moon landing was faked. The jury is out on gravity -- but as Davidson notes, no one has ever seen it."

Fudd's keyholing comes from a lack of coriolis due to the earth actually being flat and stationary inside a bubble. Duh.

Holy shit, I had no idea so many people rejected the basic tenets of geophysics. I wonder: if a flat-Earther gets into ELR shooting do they revert back to normal lol? "Wait, I have to acount for the curvature and movement of...the Earth?"
